Subverting AusterityAdvancing Writing at a Historically Black University

Subverting AusterityAdvancing Writing at a Historically Black University This article examines the development of advanced writing curricula at a historically black public university during postrecession austerity measures. Analysis of institutional documents suggests that advocates enacted self-determined curricular changes by using strategies of subversive resilience to neoliberalism. Simultaneously accommodating and resistant, this form of resilience has roots in anticolonial, African American, and feminist responses to oppressive conditions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Pedagogy Duke University Press

Abstract

This article examines the development of advanced writing curricula at a historically black public university during postrecession austerity measures. Analysis of institutional documents suggests that advocates enacted self-determined curricular changes by using strategies of subversive resilience to neoliberalism. Simultaneously accommodating and resistant, this form of resilience has roots in anticolonial, African American, and feminist responses to oppressive conditions.
